How To Bring The Home Into Uni Accommodation

Moving out of your house into University accommodation can be scary. Whether it's to a different town or just even the town where you've grown up it can seem scary. Surprisingly it's the little details you can add to your room and life that can help the big change to be a little easier. Today I am going to give you a few tips on how to make your home away from home a little bit cosier. 

First thing is lights, now be careful as some accommodation aren't a huge fan of fairy lights for health and safety reasons but if you are allowed them then they can be a nice little touch. From lightning up above your bed later at night to just filling an empty space on the wall. Another thing is that so many companies do fairy lights that there are all different ones to choose from. There's red plastic cup ones, to butterflies to even lightbulbs. As you can see I have three sets tied around my bed frame. I have brought these ones from home and they just add a nice little touch for when I'm in bed at night rather than having to turn the main light on. 

Next up is posters or wall art, now it is no surprise that you will start to get homesick. You'll probably start to miss the weirdest things possible like your bed or the rug you had in your room. To even the sweet scent of your house as you walked through the door. Photos or posters can really help tackle the homesickness, it not only brings a bit of you into the room but also allows you to feel closer to your family. It sounds odd but living in a room where the walls are blank and there isn't much of you in there can have a really weird effect on you. 

Little ornaments from home, bringing stuff from your house is probably one of the simplest things you can do to bring the home into your new home, literally. Whether it's a souvenir from a family holiday years ago to a ornamental cat you bought in Primark a couple of months ago. Being able to put your own style into the room the best way you can helps the situation a lot. It removes some of the stress and worry and allows you to feel comfortable in your surroundings. Even getting some artificial or even real flowers can be quite a big help, it almost celebrates the new adventure you're about to start soon. 

Whatever you feel comfortable and allowed to do to decorate your room to make feel best to you. Remember that it doesn't have to cost a lot. Majority of the posters I have in my room are out of free magazines and leaflets you will probably be bombarded with during the first few weeks of freshers. No matter what you decide to do I hope you feel safe and ready to start your new part of your life.
